Hallmark has offered a different Star Trek keepsake Christmas ornament every year since 1991. And since this year is Star Trek’s 50th anniversary, you’d expect something really special. Well… they did go back to the premiere episode of the original Star Trek TV series. But if you thought last year’s ornament that depicted the death of Spock was weird, get a load of Captain Kirk being attacked by the M-113 creature, also known as the salt vampire, from “The Man Trap.” And it talks!
First airing back in 1966, the first Star Trek™ episode to be broadcast featured the crew’s visit to an outpost to conduct medical exams, only to be attacked by a murderous shape-shifting alien, the Salt Monster. Press a button on this Keepsake Ornament to hear dialogue from this famous episode.
